Know About General Pipe Fittings Used In Piping Network.
The components used to create the pipeline network are called pipe fitting. Such as socket, T-joint, Flange, Union socket, Elbow, Bend, etc.
#Flange;- The flange is a metal disc that has a borehole in the center, to hold a pipe and it has at least four boltholes around the borehole. It is used to attach two pipes by welding, brazing, or tread at the ends of the pipes.
#Socket;- Inside the sockets are internally threaded, which is used for joint two pipelines straightly. Reducing socket is used if two pipelines diameter is different.
#Union Socket;- Union socket is used to like a socket. Two pipelines are used to attach straight to the long pipeline network, they facilitate during maintenance work. Therefore, a union socket is sometimes installed in pipeline fabrication instead of a socket.
#Reducer;- Reducers are used to connect two different diameters of pipes to reduce fluid mass.
#Two types of reducers are;-
01. Concentric reducer and
02. Eccentric reducers.
#90-Degree Elbow;- 90-Degree Elbow is used to make the pipelines 90 degrees angle.
#Bend;- Bend also used to bend the pipelines to a 90-degree angle, but the band’s arc radius is larger than the Elbow, so the friction loss here is less.
#T-joint;- T-joints are used to create a single branch line at a 90-degree angle from the mainline of the pipe.
#Cross Joint;– Cross Joint used to create a reverse branch line at a 90-degree angle from the mainline of the pipeline.
#Expansion joint;- Expansion joints are used to absorb the thermal contraction and expansion of the pipeline. Expansion drops everywhere that are unrealistic and ineffective.
#Cap & Plug;– Caps and plugs are used to temporarily close the edges of the pipeline.

#Hexagonal Nipple;- The hexagonal Nipple is used to connect two internal threaded pipe fittings. For maintenance work used to the pipe range, this has a hexagonal on the edges.
#Nuts and Bolt;-Nuts and bolts are used to joint in the flange of the two pipes.
